BENEFITS: Psyllium Husks Powder is the strongest natural dietary fiber for promoting regularity and supporting heart health. It is most effective when used everyday, and can be used as long as desired.
There are many reasons why psyllium husks are a part of daily health maintenance for millions of people. Extensive research has shown that psyllium husks help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, including a proper balance of HDL and LDL cholesterol. In addition, psyllium husks help promote normal regularity. Unlike stimulant laxatives, psyllium husks are gentle and are not habit forming. Psyllium husks' bulking action makes elimination easier and more comfortable. At the same time, psyllium sweeps waste and toxins more quickly out of the body, so toxins are not reabsorbed from the colon back into the bloodstream. Gluten-Free: psyllium husks do not contain any gluten so people who are gluten sensitive can use them. Yerba Prima uses only premium quality psyllium husks, without added sweeteners, colors or additives.
